Hey there, friends! It’s Missy back with you today. I have another layout to share using the gorgeous 2015 September Hip Kits! I just adore this Dear Lizzy ampersand paper, and I decided to use it as my background. It is a busy paper, so I used some white gesso to tone a lot of it down. I added some watercolor effects with gelatos and sprays and then created some layers with a few of the Project Life cards and one of the Amy Tan cut apart pieces. I used some of the charcoal cardstock to cut out a large ampersand on my Cameo and I used that as a big layered embellishment. I think my favorite part of this layout is that awesome Crate Paper wood veneer “hello” piece. I coated it in white gesso and then used gelatos to give it several shades of beautiful color.
I fussy cut this cute circle element from one of the Project Life cards. That little red ticket under that is a rub-on, which I applied to a piece of cardstock first and then cut it out. I also combined one of the Amy Tan puffy stickers with one of the cute wood veneer circle pieces. There are so many fun embellishments in the kits this month!
I can’t get enough of the Elle’s Studio alpha stamps from the Color Kit! I used one of the Distress Markers to do a bit of shading. The possibilities are endless with these stamps. I also added a lot of machine stitching with some dark grey thread.
Ahhhh….this wood veneer turned out great, I think! After I colored it, I used a black pen to outline it to make it pop a little more. I used one of the American Crafts tags here (from the Embellishment Kit), and I backed with some red paper. I added another rub-on, another wood veneer circle, and an enamel heart. And those tall skinny teal Thickers are amazing! There are a TON of them in the package!
Here’s one last look at the bottom of the page…more watercoloring, stitching, stamping and rub-ons! I finished it off with some black splatters of ink and my journaling.
Here’s the process video of this layout…I hope you enjoy it and get some kind of inspiration from it!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day! And don’t forget….today is the last day to apply for the Hip Kit Design Team Call and Hip Kit Project Life Design Team Call! Midnight EST is the deadline. Good luck to everyone!
